Many of us can get past the trauma we have experienced, a few of us are held back by it as well.
I am not some saint who will save you.
I am someone who wants to hear you.

My brain injury impacted me in many ways, bad and not so bad. It has left me with Aphasia. It interferes with my ability to clearly communicate thoughts, express them and receive them. However I am so much more than a brain injury survivor. That is not all of who I am and I will not allow myself to be limited to such a tiny moment of life. I have had so many more impactful moments before, AND after, my injury that I will not go gently into that good night.
So I’m asking you to join me in raging against the dying of our inner light.
